NYPD officers shot and killed Kawaski Trawick in his home in 2019. The NYPD withheld critical video evidence, which now means the officers who killed Trawick may not face any discipline. Apparently, this is news to Mayor Eric Adams.

"This is the first time that I'm learning that there was a delay in turning over video," Adams told Hell Gate at a press conference on Tuesday. "If someone intentionally withheld that video, they're going to be held accountable."
